I've had his app for 1.5 years. It's ok

I use this app while living financially under the principals of Dave Ramsey. It's pretty good for the purpose but doesn't roll over the unused money in the categories, you have to do it manually. Also it's never updated.

Lastly it's stopped syncing both my wife and I use it for that purpose if this issue isn't corrected we will move to another app.

Great app--requires some functionality options

I've been using this for a few months now. Very nice look to the app, with its layout and color scheme fitting well together. Accessibility is great, too, having all the important information--including adding a transaction and total spending for the month--all on the main page.

A few imrpovements I have yet to see and have contacted the developers about:

-I find the Goals feature unusable. I do not like that it will automatically add it to my month without me actually validating that I did save that money. An option to show me what I need to do but let me 'check' off when I do contribute to that goal would be nice. To control this, I don't use Goals at all and instead fit them into the Fixed Expenses category.
-Still with Goals, it would be nice to have a feature that would allow me to make additional payments to the goal over and above just the set monthly one. when paying my student loan, I'd like to use some leftover money at the end of the month toward the goal. However, I cannot reflect this in the Goals section because it is set. Also, with student loans, interest needs to be calculated, and the Goals section does not offer any way to do so. Thus, the amount I owe and my monthly payments are different after 6 months, and it is a HUGE hassle to edit the goal and change this. So, once again, I only use Fixed Expenses for these sorts of things.

5 stars are not enough.

I can't believe this is a free app. Very intuitive and beautiful. It keeps things simple which is why it works so well. Budgeting isn't rocket science but it needs done. Back in Black has made spend tracking much less of a chore for me. Thanks!
